About Us

Bringing East Londoners together for culture, community and to celebrate our shared history. Oxford House has been the beating heart of Bethnal Green since 1884.

We are a heritage and cultural centre. We have a thriving activity programme that uses our creative spaces including theatre, dance studio, gallery and chapel. We provide creative projects and opportunities for our diverse community.

We are a community space. We are home to our own café, affordable office and venue/hire space. Over 20 charitable organisations, social enterprises, and creative organisations are based at Oxford House.

We offer volunteering opportunities. We work to develop employability skills and learning. Whether you want to learn a new skill, or gain valuable work-related experience, we have the opportunity for you. Check back in spring 2021 when we will be posting new projects to take part in.
